Discover Knightshayes today - a great post-war garden, 19th-century parkland and grand Gothic Revival architecture by Victorian visionary William Burges. With acres of glorious garden and park, surrounding a spectacular Gothic Revival house, Knightshayes is the complete country gentleman's dream. The house is a rare example of the work of William Burges, whose lavish designs have always inspired extremes of opinion. Full of quirks and curiosities, it is a house of many faces.
The formal and woodland garden is one of the finest and most varied plant collections in the country. With over 1200 plant species unique to Knightshayes and an ever- changing display, it's always worth a visit, as is the walled kitchen garden, brimming with seasonal produce for the Stables Café. Entrance included.
Sheppy’s House of Cider
Through more than 200 years of making real premium craft cider, six generations of the Sheppy family have weathered the ups and downs of combining farming with cider-making by embracing change and opportunity. Enjoy the tour, tasting, perhaps a walk in the orchard and a visit to the Deli! Tour & Tasting included.
